Subject: [Samba] Spaces in WinME Directory Names


I've finally gotten Samba and WinME to connect and see each other.

On my WinME box I've got the usual My Documents folder which I'd like my
box to be able to use.

I think there's a problem with the space in the directory name.

smbmount //WinME/My Documents ~/mountpoint
2854:  tree connect failed:  ERRSRV - ERRinvnetname (Invalid network
name in 
tree connect.)
SMB connection failed

smbmount //WinME/"My Documents"  ~/mountpoint
smbmount //WinME/'My Documents"  ~/mountpoint

all give me the same error.

Any ideas on how to make this work?
